Summer School Attendance Dates
Lowville Academy Summer School will meet according to the dates listed earlier in this article for the block of their choice. Please note that because of the three-week time span, it is not possible to miss any days of instruction for credit bearing course work. Families need to schedule vacations accordingly. It will not be possible to meet every student's academic needs in this short block format unless the student is present each day.
If you are planning to Audit a course, you will need to meet with Summer School Principal, Mr. Hanselman, before registering. Please note, preferences will be given to students who need the course credit. Also, we will not exceed class size for students wishing to audit the class.
